    Oh, God love ‘er. She deserves a medal! This lovely lady is my idol. You know, I do wonder what she made of having her photo taken like this when she woke.

  2. Ellie says:

    The only reason she can sleep is because her twins are not screaming. Like mine are.

  3. Mama of 4 says:

    If her babies are like mine, she won’t have 2 minutes of quiet before one or both babies crawl over and start climbing all over her. Whenever Mama’s on the floor, babies are certain that she wants to play.

  4. Kay says:

    Been there, done that would have bought the tshirt, but quite frankly it would just be another freakin’ thing that needs to get washed. Hey dad, put downt he camera and wash soemthing!

  5. Betty says:

    Instead of taking pictures, maybe Dad should do some frickin laundry!

  6. Don says:

    Their escape from the laundry basket corral was short-lived. Mom awoke from her nap to find the twins trying to squeeze through the doggie door in the kitchen. This crawling stage was for the birds. They swore tonight would be the night they learned to “waddle” (with Dad’s help of course).

  7. PaulaNancy says:

    “The instant she touched the Enchanted Diaper, she fell into a deep sleep. And no one but the other mothers knew why; for they, too, had once-upon-a-time fallen under the curse of Too Much Laundry.”

  8. Tara says:

    Rest assured. The cord looks like it’s for a window air conditioner in an apartment or something.

    I also hope that the cloth diapers were for burp rags and not bums. Twins make twice the diaper mess!

    All I thought at first was, “yup, that about sums it up!”

  9. Lisa says:

    I love this picture and like most moms, I totally relate.

  10. Marie-Claude says:

    I only have one kid and I can relate to this poor woman. But like other posters, I’m worried about that cord near baby no. 1. Also, I’m worried all the “clean” laundry will get dirty in the babies’ wake…all that work for nothing! The photographer better help out or it’s the doghouse for him!

  11. Pse says:

    I could have taken this photo 5 minutes ago!

  12. MissWillow says:

    It’s only awkward to those with no kids lol I have done this and can relate!! lol

  13. Maureen says:

    I know the feeling! Feel like that today actually. As for the cord and baby level, where else would you plug it in? Every house I’ve ever seen has outlets at “baby level.”

  14. Tina says:

    I’ve been that kid and I’ve been that mom…..

  15. Katie says:

    This is disturbing.

  16. Evelyn says:

    This picture is great! I had days like this when my kids were that age.

  17. Liz says:

    Welcome to my World!! Oh, I totally know this feeling!

  18. Steben says:

    Dang, that mom is cranked. Bless the hearts of all mothers. Hope that electrical cord within kids reach isn’t attached to a hot iron. This is sadly funny…

  19. Beth says:

    that’s a lot of cloth diapers to fold!

  20. Mary says:

    Poor thing! I just want to cover her with a blanket and call in a babysitter/laundry maid!

  21. Mrs Alda says:

    I hate that the cord is hanging at baby level.

  22. Kristy says:

    Oh, that poor girl! I feel so sorry for her. I have felt just like that myself, and I didn’t have twins! I sure hope the person who took that picture put the camera down, put her to bed, folded the laundry and watched the babies while she slept!

  23. Mandie says:

    I can sooo relate to her!

  24. JB says:

    Woah. Total choking/fire hazard going on.

    • Mandie says:

      Cute. That is a total “mom” thing to say. Notice how everyone who has commented (myself included) are all moms as well. LOL.

  25. Mrsgwyllt says:

    What is really awkward is that there is another adult in the house taking a photo instead of helping the poor woman! She has my sympathy.

  26. Sarah says:

    I wouldn’t call this awkward so much as “realistic”.

  27. Lisa says:

    Oh, how well I know that feeling!!! 🙂

  28. Maureen says:

    I would be a little concerned about the cord plugged in at baby level.

  29. j m says:

    I’ve had days like this. Tell the photographer to put down the frigging camera and help with the laundry.

  30. mom23halls says:

    Nothing awkward about that! Just cold, hard reality….

  31. Freckles says:

    Now THIS is the kind of photo that should be sent out with the Xmas cards, not the formal studio portrait.

  32. Lori says:

    Yeah, that’s about how I’d feel too!

  33. Jon says:

    Reality! Not awkward!

  34. Apryl says:

    I have 3 and I can’t tell you all how true this is…. Poor momma!

  35. penny says:

    Child at the back :I TOLD her not to touch that dangerous-looking electric cable ……

  36. LuLu says:


  37. Paula says:

    OMG – Poor woman. As a mum of 3 kids within 17 months, I can completely empathise.

  38. blue-eyes says:

    That’s not awkward at all. I’ve sooo been there, esp. when mine were little. Every mother can relate to this picture.

  39. Valerie says:

    I have been there too many times!

  40. Ducky says:

    Two immediate thoughts.
    1. I hope that’s the clean laundry she’s reclining on.
    2. Sleep! Sleep now! Dad (or whoever has the camera) can take care of the twins!

  41. Jana says:

    Well yeah! Doing laundry and taking care of twins will get you tired. She’s even doing washable diapers, good for her.

  42. MamaX5 says:

    That’s not awkward, that’s just a very tired mom. A well-deserved nap!

  43. BT says:

    Nothing awkward about it. I’ve had days like that without kids. Mother just needs a nap.

  44. Rick says:

    I’m sure that there are lots of Mom’s who have felt like this! Laundry, kids …. I need a nap!

  45. Lynn says:

    I know exactly how she feels

  46. Penny says:

    As a mom of four I can attest that the laundry NEVER ends…and you need a nap from time to time! Came to the conclusion that the only way laundry would ever be “DONE” would be if the entire family were to be naked…not gonna happen 😉

  47. LM says:

    I’m just sorry there are no pictures of me in this predicament!!

  48. John says:

    Awkward, perhaps, but twin babies? Can certainly understand the need for the nap!

  49. Julie says:

    Just how is this awkward? I can totally relate!

  50. Karin says:

    Not awkward. Awesome and oh, so true!
